We at one time stayed on the higher ground above and overlooking the lighthouse at a rental series of attached apartment units. Since sold, now one has to stay at the hostel or in town at Pescadero or expensive Costanoa further down the road! Clean, safe. Beautiful views! Tremendous photo opportunities! Whales, fog, flowers, cliffs! Plenty of beauty!....where my heart... More

A friend of mine and I stumbled upon this place while driving up Highway 1 and booked a room for the next week. Close to some great hiking in Big Basin, not far from either Santa Cruz or San Francisco. The staff was charming and sweet and everyone we met were very sweet and fun to be around. We checked...

We made a reservation in December for two nights in one of Pigeon Point's private rooms for August. The room was great-- very comfortable bed, enough room for a pack-and-play for our son. The hostel staff was welcoming and warm at check-in and throughout the weekend. There are four residential buildings. Three have a kitchen and one shares the kitchen... More

This hostel is quaint and charming. Location is peaceful and beautiful. Lots to explore. Lighthouse Museum and Gift Shop right there! Enjoyed our one night stay in a private room with shared bath. Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely return again.

We booked 4 beds in a dorm at this hostel. The 6 bed dorm room had a private bathroom, which was very nice. Although the buildings could use a little tune up. It is a charming hostel. The beds were clean and comfortable and so was the kitchen. They have a great hot tub on the cliffs, overlooking the ocean.... More

There were three of us visiting in January, and we were lucky to have a whole building to ourselves. We didn't expect to have a kitchen, but we had full access and cooked a few meals. Loved using the jacuzzi at nighttime. We woke up early and watched the sunrise. The trails along the beach have some access to the... More

We decided to stop into see this lighthouse, before continuing our trip to the Monterey Peninsula for the weekend. This lighthouse is located along highway 1 and was another place to see a part of the California coast and read about its history. There really is not much to see here in the way of a museum but the view... More

What fun to stay at a lighthouse hostel. The day we arrived, we went to the lighthouse state park's visitor center and learned all about it from a friendly volunteer who looks like an old seaman. I was glad we did that, because it gave us a good appreciation for the history of the lighthouse and the things that have... More

Well, we wanted to stay here as we had stayed previously a few years back. We were on the return leg (back to Canada) of a 9000 km ride to Baja California and back. We remembered the Pigeon Point hostel being close to amazing restaurant in Pescadero (Duarte's Tavern). (featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives :) ). Well I went... More
